You can't download Red Hat.

Thanks for the reply AwesomeMachine...

It is possible to download...It is just for testing, I have downloaded previous versions from the above link...

Also it is possible to download RHEL 5.4 base server, My question is weather it is possible to download Advanced platform version of RHEL 5.4 since I am not able to find it under..

Thanks in advance...

Advanced Platform is not a separate version, more of a higher level subscription that enables support for higher end hardware, Virtualization, Clustering & such things. If you are not going to subscribe & just want to try out the Clustering for example, you don't need to re-download anything. All the packages for Virtualization & Clustering are already on the DVD. But without the proper RHN subscription, you need to install them manually with rpm.
